Track Name: Pepa's Eyes
Pepa’s eyes they glow
Through the dark of her soul
She takes her pen and draws
All the shapes that she knows

Heart of ivory
Feels the world as it is
A smile, a kiss, she flows
Through the arms she awoke

Pepa’s eyes won’t dry
With my words of goodbye
She drives my hands to carve
The shape of her in my mind
Track Name: No Faith
No faith in you
No faith in me
No faith in what I hear

Some talk and talk
To feel they’re real
Some think and drink
Just like me

No faith in you
No faith in me
No faith in what I see

I sit and watch
The girls go by
They cross my eye
And never come back

No faith in you
No faith in me
No faith in what I sing

Some smile and shake my hand
They grab my cash, I do the same
Track Name: The Dream
In a dream I stood facing a mirror
Showing the reflection of you and I
But every time I turned around
My lover would vanish from my sight

First thing I saw as I opened my eyes
Was the picture I took of you in July
Northern beauty bathed in the evening light
Your side of the bed is a desert now

One day I might turn into fire
Ready to burn your house down to the ground
Keep in mind you’re the one who lit the match
I held in hand and waved as a sign
Track Name: Blue Raven
Dark blue is what I am
At such times of the year
Friends call but i don’t care
That’s cause I need you

I must hide above grey skies
Where no light can hurt my eyes
Free of all those blinding lies
That’s where I’ll see you

I fly among the ravens
Wings spread to greet your hand
So rare, you lay with care
That’s how I love you
Track Name: I Might
I might repeat myself
With words already said
I need to find the cause
Of all the tears my eyes won’t hold

I might discard this song
And let it sing itself
Why should she make amends
For all the things that I have done wrong

I might feel just fine
Away from all the rhymes
I pen for her to read
A melody she will not hear
Track Name: I Have Sinned
I have sinned more than once
In the time we’ve been apart
Now I kneel only
Before the creatures that torture me
I have found the thrill of life
In an apple

Well I ain’t the best you have
But still, I ain’t so bad
At least I think at times
When I watch some others around
I redeem myself in music
At least I try

Yes I have sinned more than once
For I’ve laid hands upon
What shines in the dark, it seems
You gave me eyes to turn blind
The moment I open the door
Of desire
Track Name: The Waves (Part I)
From the window you can see
Shores of the island you should leave
Hot waves of sand burn through the city
All the men that came have drowned in it

Listen to the waves for me
Listen to the words they bring

Home is missing from your dreams
Love, missing from your deals
Call off the game you deceived
Living in the name of greed

Listen to the waves for me
Listen to the words they bring

I have fled your land
I ran away
For what I longed for was misplaced
I stole from you

Listen to the waves for me
Listen to the words they bring
Track Name: Mirror
You have something on your mind
Let me be the one
Helping you relieve the weight
Some thoughts can make us bear

These signs of despair
I’ve seen them before
In the lines of strangers’ faces
They speak more than words

You and I are not so different
I can hear what you’re thinking
Just like a mirror
Reflecting your pain

Drink my words as liquor
Warming your head on a winter’s day
Let these few notes soothe your breathing
We’re going the same way
Track Name: The Valve
As it starts
It feels like a force
Unseen

Then the words
They pour down so sweet and clear
From the Valve
A waterfall that’s always been

Shored upon
An island that’s lost at sea
Memory forever flows beneath
Your skin

Won’t you shed your mysteries before you leave

The Valve
Is opened wide
I see, I see you fair
Breathe me the sigh
The one that I long to oust

Time now stretches
I’m coming back to you
Guide me to rest within
Within your tide
I’m coming back to you
Don’t leave me yet
There’s still so much more
To feel
It’s coming back to me

Then it stops
